By Times Staff Writer
Published November 14, 2007



It's not too early to start organizing your group for the annual Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Competition.

The festive holiday event includes caroling performances, an award ceremony and a community sing-along.

Just bring lots of holiday spirit and at least four or more friends to form a caroling group and perform.

The event is 5:30 to 7 p.m. Dec. 8 at North Straub Park in St. Petersburg.

Teams of carolers raise pledges to support the work of the St. Petersburg Free Clinic and First Night St. Petersburg.

Teams that raise $250 or more compete for a Figlanthropy Award for the team that raises the most money, a Best Choral Performance Award judged by celebrity judges, and a Most Original Performance Award judged by celebrity judges. Figgy teams are eligible to win a People's Choice Award, selected by Figgy spectators.

Call 727 821-1200.
